Exploring both familiar and more rare traditional klezmer music, this workshop will focus on ensemble strengthening. How does an ensemble actively support a soloist? How does an ensemble shine as a group? What musical/performance techniques help a group achieve a unique sound? We will approach such issues by working on variation, improvisation, rhythmic diversification, phrasing and more! This ensemble is for intermediate and advanced students, comfortable with learning by ear.
